LGD is the same as ALS which is the same as MND.
It was used in a few sentences. MND, AKA ALS and LGD is what the creator of the IBC had. He died at the age of TT. The three terms could just be stated with the acronym S. Why waste so many letters?
Here are the various terms spelled out in real words instead of those expressed by those suffering from SAAD:
MND- Motor Neuron Disease
LGD – Lou Gehrig’s Disease (Wikipedia does not even have reference to this)
IBC – Ice Bucket Challenge
TT – Thirty Two
SAAD – Stupid Annoying Acronym Displays
S – Sclerosis
